Outreach and Education

The Sam Rodgers’ Community Access and Engagement team works every day to better connect our patients and community to vital health care services, health education, and other important resources that help break down barriers and promote equitable access.

Want to talk about a community partnership opportunity?

Since the early days of our health center, we began educating our patients and the community on important health topics, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • High blood pressure
  • Other chronic diseases
  • Nutritional needs 
  • And more!

Our Community Access and Engagement team members are the eyes and ears of Sam Rodgers.  Serving the health care needs of minorities, immigrants, and refugees can present special challenges for health care providers.  

Outreach services help provide essential services and programs that reduce the barriers to good health for minorities and newcomers to the community by breaking down language barriers, identifying the medical needs within the population, improving the conceptions of health within a culture, and helping patients navigate a complicated health care system.

How we’re different

Our priority is the health of you and your family. You are safe in our hands and your information is confidential.

We respect diverse values, beliefs, and feelings, and can provide care in multiple languages. Our staff, nurses, and doctors share the same diverse backgrounds as our patients and understand your life experience.

We accept Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance. If you don’t have insurance, we can help you apply or we will determine a cost based on your income and family size. We will never deny health care if a patient is unable to pay.
